Headteacher’s welcome


A warm welcome to St. Columba’s Catholic Primary School in Wallsend. We hope our website will give you a flavour of our wonderful community. We are very proud of our school, our pupils and their successes.

As a faith school, our Mission Statement underpins our aims and values. At St. Columba’s we endeavour to follow the example of Jesus Christ by loving, respecting, understanding and forgiving each other.

We aim to provide your child with the experiences, knowledge and academic skills to inspire them to become successful life-long learners. We want our children to be the best they can be. Everyone in our school community is special and we all work together to promote self-worth and self-esteem.

Throughout this website, we aim to share the successes and achievements of our pupils and provide relevant key information and updates for parents and visitors to the school. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange a visit.

Mrs C. Garbutt, Headteacher
